Hey everybody! Anybody else ready for the weekend to arrive? Me!!! Of course our weekend will be busy but at least it is the weekend.
On the school front....
We had a nice productive week this week. We spent time working on English, Spelling, Math and Science. We had a little bit of art thrown in using the Art for Kids website we have fallen in love with. My DS will sit there for long periods of time following these videos and doing quite well. He's having a blast and hopefully this weekend we will add an art wall to his room so he can display it. He's asked for this in his room so he can show it off.
One thing we have both enjoyed this week is our read aloud. I find as he does his written work, he works better if I'm reading something. So this week we tried a book we found at Barnes and Noble. It is a huge hit here. It's the first in a series and we are both loving it.
I'm not really sure what sparked it but one day this week Boo Bear just came out with school was really fun today. (me silently screeching eeeeee!! ) Not sure what was different except we got everything finished up and he just enjoyed it. ;) A homeschool win for sure!!
We also had an interesting side lesson this week. As we were doing school work on Tuesday, Molly started raising a ruckus at the front window. We ran over to see what was going on and this is what we found.
I love that we can take these moments to sit and watch things going on before finishing up school. We are learning in everything we do. :)
On the homefront...
I'm working on implementing a better chore system around here. For myself included. I usually just try to have one day a week that is the major cleaning day. Instead, I'm going to try out a new schedule I saw this week where each day has it's own specific chores so you don't have to do everything all at once. I'm hoping this will work for us. DS has his own chores he has to do and I'm also considering upping those as well. What do you kiddos do around the house to help out?
In the kitchen...
This week we've had some pretty yummy dinners. Last night was a mixture of my own. Not sure what you'd call it but it was yummy. I didn't measure anything but put some fresh ginger, minced garlic and Tamari sauce on top of some beef strips with onions. It was pretty good and even the kiddo liked it. We are in the middle of making some changes to our eating and we are looking forward to sharing it with you.
So that's about it. We had a pretty normal relaxed week this week. Maybe today we can get in a field trip or something exciting. Not quite sure yet. What about you? What does your day/weekend look like?
